Frankfort 100 Solar Feasibility Study

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


In 2021, The city of Frankfort, Kentucky ("Frankfort," or "the City") committed to ambitious climate targets: 1. City Clean Electricity: 100% clean electricity for city government operations by the end of 2023, 2. City Clean Energy: 100% clean energy for city government operations by the end of 2030, and 3. Community Clean Energy: 100% clean energy community-wide by the end of 2040. In 2022, Frankfort partnered with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for a Phase I study to identify pathways to achieve the City's first two goals of City Clean Electricity by 2023 and City Clean Energy by 2030 (Phase I). As recommended in the final Phase I report described (described below), NREL was asked to perform an initial feasibility study for a PV project to offset the electricity used by city government operations. This report evaluates the feasibility of utility-scale solar and identifies potential barriers.
